The blood and marrow transplantation field has been a leader in voluntarily improving quality through FACT accreditation. Clinical programs are currently adapting to immune effector cellular therapy accreditation requirements and changes in the FACT-JACIE Seventh Edition Hematopoietic Cellular Therapy Standards. This workshop will address important topics in the cellular therapy field including:

Overview of FACT Accreditation Processes
Common Citations Overview
Integration of Immune Effector Cells into Accreditation
Using the Tracer Methodology to Assess Compliance with FACT Standards
Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategies (REMS)
How to prepare for and conduct inspections

Clinical Outcomes

The workshop includes two tracks: New Inspector Training and General Sessions for active inspectors, applicants, and accredited programs. The Inspector Training track includes sessions on pre-inspection review, the ins and outs of performing an on-site inspection, how to conduct an exit interview, and how to prepare an inspection report. The General Sessions will review commonly cited deficiencies in the areas of quality management, personnel, and donor selection, evaluation, and management. This track also includes sessions on how to use the Tracer Methodology to assess compliance with FACT Standards and risk evaluation and mitigation strategies. Sessions are accompanied by exercises and group discussions to apply lecture concepts to real-world experiences.
